Vampiro Cocktail Recipe

Vampiro Cocktail

Chef Adriana Martin
Tequila and sangrita are a traditional pairing in my Mexican cuisine, and this Vampiro Cocktail combines the flavors of the high-quality smoky Don Julio tequila blanco with sangrita (a combination of tomato juice, spices, and orange juice) and grapefruit juice. It is called "vampiro" (vampire) because "sangrita" in Spanish means blood, and the taste of the drink has an enjoyable bite with the sweet and spicy flavor profile.
